Needle Point
Maria has volunteered her time to teach needlepoint and stitchery
to Girl Scouts, teens and adults. There are so many different kits
available that meet the needs of a variety of experience levels.
This is a sample of a basic flower on muslin project. A stamp is
used to stamp images onto the muslin. Then the students learn
how to finish the flowers using a variety of simple stitches. This is a
great beginner project.
Holiday Designs
Here are some Holiday Designs that were created for beginner level projects. These are made using a variety
of techniques and multimedia
Stitchery is a
very relaxing
and portable
hobby. It is also
perfect to teach
at "Make-it
Take-it"
workshops. The
stitches in this
picture are
some more
examples of the
different stitches
that can be
taught easily in
a classroom
situation.
